The Lyrics

Take time to roll on bedsheets in the night
those sleepless hours try fall asleep, alright?
And when the sleep you get oh, finally
the things which you dread haunt eternally -
Take fight with 8 meter python snake
try outswim piranhas on lake
meet the Mob on dream or the Bogeyman
see all the horrors that you can

Everybody needs sleep and dormation
everybody needs time to rest
everybody needs dreams, recreation
everybody needs a peaceful nest

These are things, these are things, things nightmares are made of
These are things, these are things, things nightmares are made of

Meet spiders or the Giant Squid
go through a rape till you want quit
Run, run, run just for your life
get in the midst of civil strife -

Everybody needs sleep and dormation
everybody needs time to rest
everybody needs dreams, recreation
everybody needs a peaceful nest

These are things, these are things, things nightmares are made of
These are things, these are things, things nightmares are made of

Like angst and fear and pain, fatigue -
and things you never thought of
Monsters, pooters, Black Knigt, snakes, it's sleep time!
Torture, hellfire, Freddy Kruger, TV, it's sleep time!

These are things, these are things, things nightmares are made of
These are things, these are things, things nightmares are made of
